I was planning on getting about 4 but saw this group of 7 young ones advertised for sale and couldn't resist.
The rooster was an Orpington which is a breed I'm interested in. They are an old English breed which are friendly & good layers even through the cold winter months.
The chicks mothers were half orpington's so we have ended up with some interesting colour combinations. They are still young but should start to lay in a couple of months which will be just before winter.
